Right now Joe has SU has the #1 overall seed in his bracket. Excerpts are from his chat today. Nice to get some love :)
I'm an Orange follower in the Midwest. Assuming Melo comes back and Syracuse finishes strong...how much does/will the committee weight any potential losses in his absence when determining top seeds?Joe Lunardi (4:23 PM)
If Melo comes back, I believe Syracuse will be the No. 1 overall seed. They are even now on my board.

Hey Joe! Who do you think looks like a strong overall #1 seed? Syracuse or Kentucky? Which team do you think has the chance to make the Final Four? Also, your thoughts on Syracuse? Thanks!Joe Lunardi (4:48 PM)
It's still Syracuse, Maheer, and it's not really close (assuming Melo comes back).
Does Calipari get his first title?Joe Lunardi (4:58 PM)
Depends on Feb Melo.
